Ok, not so much a review of the team as a review of...what? How we feel as a fan base? How I feel as a fan?
First, group hug. No seriously. All those that want Richt fired and preferably last January and those that are ok with him staying arguably want the same thing: a successful program. The problem lies in the definition of that. Now, I am not smart enough to try to suss out the definitions and the motivations for that. I am smart enough not to say it should be one or the other.
All that is to say that Mark Richt will be our coach at least until the end of the season. Those that want him gone will only find satisfaction in us winning the rest of the games with no turnovers, no errant passes, no stupid penalties, no ill timed draw plays, no blown coverages, no missed field goals, and preferably 45+ point shutouts. Those that want him to stay forever will find reasons to keep him, regardless of how ill prepared and under coached the team looks. Now, Greg McGarity views success for the football program the same way Potter Stewart viewed pornography: He knows it when he sees it. A lot of him 'seeing' that comes from what the money people tell him and President Adams.
As long as McGarity is the AD and there are no serious issues with a team revolt, Richt will coach the team until the Georgia Tech game. My personal feeling is that he'll be here longer than that, but honestly, I can see the team reverting to last year's barrel of fail and him being gone. The next few weeks will be far more important than the last three were, in that regard.
Hopefully, Georgia wins this week, which I think we will. If not, Nutt will become the second coach in two seasons to get one of his few wins in his firing season against Georgia. That guy is as fired as Damon Evans on July 1, 2010.
